A Giant Thank You to everyone who has shared or sent cards about my personal share story here and about your recovery story. I treasure all the deep personal talks and letters.
Happy Holidays to everyone! Thank you for coming to my profile!
This week, I just started working from home. It has been magnificent! I cherish all the extra time to do crafts and write letters.
Nature walks and wandering around trails along barren coastline are what I love. I also adore swimming, dancing, yoga... when I’m not reading, writing, and crafting.
This year we adopted a puppy, Sunny. She’s from a local animal shelter, part terrier and part chihuahua. I usually prefer big dogs but she’s a good egg. And pretty smart. She loves stones and rocks like me Sabrina, my step-daughter, and Carl, my husband. She often digs up stones to give to me. We save the collection on our work table. One of our craft tables.
I was brought up conservatively and sheltered from all the free love of 1969 and hippie freedom. But I find that I’ve embraced that Bohemian attitude but there’s still an element of conservative structure inside me. So I’m eclectic.
For style, I’ve been experimenting with various art forms and mediums: alcohol inks, acrylic, watercolor, gelatos, chalk paint, collage, and more. I’ve been a repressed artist and I’m letting all of my inner artists out to play.
I swim at dusk since my work schedule switched to earlier. Any time I’m in the water is a good time.
I’ve been in various 12 step groups for recovery, AA, Al Anon, SLAA. I’ve done lots of varieties of therapy and I feel like I still need more but art seems to be my main therapy lately,
I haven't met a craft I don't like yet. I have been experimenting with everything!
Books, Music, Films: I love films. I regularly go to the public library here in San Francisco and check out tons of books, music & film.
Books: currently reading in fiction everything by Ursula LeGuin, Paolo Bacigalupi, Neil Gaiman, Hugh Howey, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson.
In November 2018, I’m reading Murakami’s latest book.
Non-fiction topics: I listen to cooking & home improvement shows, political shows/watch a lot of news; environmental stuff, travel channel, I even watch the home shopping networks lately.
I'm completely open to what you send. I don't have any specific wishes. Thank you sending anything at all!
